How do you teach sub-editing students the difference between plurals and possessives when even the national broadcaster can’t get it right? For that matter, to use “while” instead of the arcane “whilst”?

apostrophe.

I’m lonely now oh can you see, my only friend, apostrophe?

You make a difference in my life, in poetry - a cutting knife.

The difference between your and you’re, without you, my writing’s poor.

I use you often, more and more.

I love you buddy, forever more.
